The New Orleans Saints claimed Bryce Harris off of waivers from the San Francisco 49ers on Monday, bringing back their emergency tackle after Terron Armstead left Sunday's win over Tampa Bay with a chest injury.

Armstead said he believed he'd be alright in the locker room after the game.

Harris has been with the Saints several times this season, typically when one of the tackles was facing an injury situation and he might be needed in an emergency situation. The veteran tackle has not played a snap for New Orleans so far this season.

New Orleans waived defensive tackle John Hughes from the roster to make room for Harris. Hughes, like Harris, has been on and off the team so far this season, seeing his only action in 11 snaps against the run-heavy Chicago Bears.

The Saints also waived veteran wide receiver Corey Fuller and veteran guard Martin Wallace from injured reserve, allowing them the chance to sign with other teams.
